The webinar will reflect on the operations of inter-sectional exclusions in mainstream knowledge cultures and then on what it means to build gender into educational resources. To what extent does online education reflect the same imbalances as its offline counterpart? What is open knowledge, open data & open content? What is the disparity in women & gender-diverse person’s access to the internet & devices? What could the technical manifestation of inclusivity look like? The webinar will delve into these & other similar questions.
